I love getting together with friends, having a drink, and catching up. And I love the atmosphere in bars, pubs and taverns. Not necessarily on a crowded Saturday night or Super Bowl Sunday, but on a quiet afternoon when we can enjoy a libation and chat the day away. So I've developed quite a fondness for bars around the world. When we travel I usually bring home a shot glass or two as souveniers.
My husband and I are in the long process of restoring a 19th century Maine farmhouse, we are always mindful of creating spaces that encourage our friends to visit, share a drink and hang out with us. We've got this one space that wasn't really a room but it was more than a hall. Well we turned it into the pool room. We added a wet bar and seating area. So it actually feels like a pool table in a barroom and everyone can sit around, watch the players and chat. We've added several shot glass display cabinets, so I finally have a place to show off my shot glasses from around the world!
